With the advent of matchmaking seasons, bought accounts will be reset at the end of each season, making them slightly less valuable. But this 5K account just sold for $60USD on eBay, and there will likely always be a market for buying and selling high MMR accounts.

Account buyers, here’s a short list of way better things you can buy instead of an account that’s just going to reset in four months:

What else could you spend $60 on?

  • 18 Magic: the Gathering booster packs.
MTG booster pack
(BullMoose/Wizards of the Coast)
  • A college textbook.
Geology Textbook
Amazon
  • Food for a week.

  • Three copies of Cuphead for you and your friends.

  • Get a ticket to next year’s TI, plus have money left over to put towards travel and lodging. Yeah, how about that?

Seriously, there’s a lot better things to spend your money on than buying an account that’ll just reset in a few months. The next time you’re considering artificially inflating your e-ego, take a step back and consider investing that money into something more worthwhile than being flamed for 50 minutes as you play in a skill bracket that’s way too hard for you.

The Dota tutorial leaves a lot to be desired, but that doesn't mean Valve can't fix it.
